What Is a Boar Bristle Brush?

Boar hair closely mimics the composition of human hair, as they’re widely known for including keratin, one of the major structural proteins found in human hair. That’s why boar hair brushes have quickly become the industry standard.  

Keratin is a protein that may be found in your hair, skin, and nails. Keratin is also present in the organs and glands of the body. It’s a protective protein that is less likely to be scratched or torn than other types of cells produced by your body.

Only the root of the boar hair is used in our boar hair brushes, ensuring the finest quality bristle. No boars were injured in the manufacturing of any of our brushes, so don’t be alarmed! The hairs come from the byproduct of animals that were grown for their meat.

Now let’s take a look at the wonderful details about this brush! With just a few swipes, our boar bristle brush conditions and imparts maximum shine and smoothness to strands. Stroking your hair with this boar bristle brush from head to ends will help your natural oils to circulate evenly throughout your hair, offering nourishment to any dry ends.

    The best way to brush your hair

    It may seem simple, but there are certain techniques for brushing your hair. Keep reading for the right and wrong way to brush your hair. 

    To start, it can be beneficial to have a detangler or leave-in conditioner added to your hair before brushing.

    It can also be helpful to start brushing at the ends, and move up to the mid-shaft, then the roots. This method will remove any tangles, make it easier to brush from root to end, and won’t cause unnecessary breakage. 

    Pro tip: You can prep your hair before brushing by using a wide-toothed comb in the shower right after applying your conditioner. This will save you so much time and make it easier to brush your hair in the long run. 

    Don’t stress about brushing your hair perfectly, but try to incorporate these tips into your brushing routine.

    Using a hairbrush can also help stimulate hair growth. There are so many benefits to brushing your hair.

    Be mindful of your frequency

    Although brushing your hair has many benefits, try to make sure that you aren’t brushing too frequently. Over-brushing could lead to hair loss. This can be a confusing concept since brushing can benefit your hair and help stimulate hair growth. But just like all things, anything in excess can be harmful. The friction of constant brushing can lead to damage.
